manner. During these dances no Indian,

Our National Literature.
An es,.,;y on the subject of the Amteri-
can literature by Walt Whitman, quaint,
rgged and horny as one of his own
portraits, appears in The North Ame-ri-
can R.,view. The style reminds one
somewhat of the peculiar English-which
Carlyle labored so many years to make
unlike that of anybody else who evei
wrote. The difference is that Walt
Whitmaan's unusual English is natural
to, him. "'Have we a national literai-
turei" he asks. He thinks not a litera-
ture distinctively, though we have the
elements of one, and a noble one.
Whether we shall ever rise to our op-
S Portunity and weave it into form and
-enduring substance, how~ew up as a eonundrum too deep for him.
In his travels through all parts of the
country Walt has f,:u~n,1 that good nat.
ure, decorum an~l intelligence are the?
main characteristics of the young pen.
ple of the United States. H-. bi-ie\ves
these .qualities, "the vertebrall 'st,:,ck ot
superbest aud noblest nations." w\ill be
,the basis of our writings. In dl\velopinr-
/ a literature we must "treat: the oM1'

hereditaments" too.- Yes, W\alt, we'll
try to.
What are now deepest wanted in the stl;,:-
as roots for their literature are patrioti-iu,
'nationality, en-semble, or the i.lei- ,,if thie,:.,
and the uncomprottisi.ng geute- ;1-1.1 saturn
tion of the-se. Not the mere bv.w-lL;,: anid brag.

The Betring Sea Case.

A thoroughly compact and under-
standable 'statement Qf the Behring sea
seal fisheries controversy is made by
William Livingstcon Crounse in Harper's
Weekly. We draw-from the story a
conclusion flattering to our national
pride in .at least one respect. It is that
in ingenuity and extent of informa,
tion in regard to this case Mr. Blaine is
ahead of his opponent,' Lord Salisbury.
He has gone over the literature of the
question from beginning to end, 'and
even had Russian documents retrans-
Ono fact that has stood out in plain
sight for seventy years is not very credit-
able to the linguistic learning of the
diplomats of civilized nations. 'Ameri-
cans are not great .linguists, and, conse-
quently not much is expected of them,
but it is a fact that a gross mistransla-
tion of the, Russian edict of 1821 re-
mained as the standard authority for the
claims of that country, and was quoted
accordingly by Lord Salisbury, until,
during the present administration, the
American secretary of state caused a lit-
eral translation to be made, which Con-
veyed a wholly different meaning from'
that whiich had been accepted ,so long.
There are a hundred 'people now who
could make a translation from, Russian
where one could do so seventy years ago.
To make a'very long stoy-as short as
possible,, as- far back as 1799 Russia;
made claims which inclosed Behring sea
as far south as the fifty'-fifth parallel of
latitude. In- 1821 a ukase ywas issued by
Alexander I making still greater claims
on behalf of Russia.-, Against this claim
both the United States and Great Brit-
ain'made, formal protests: Now when
America demuands that British vessels
stop deep qe.1seal fi-:hing at;th' bree,lin-
time of tlhe animals, thus' tending to ex-
.."erniuate them, En.iland auswters that
,,the United States, hers,-.lf protested
against Russia's claim in 1<21. ,`-On tlie
part, of the United StaitEQ, however, iit
is answered that the pr,:,ti.,et Was i.-sue."l
against'the claim- f ,Ussia' in 1821 to

Toha'e met but once, but once,
? And swept forever apart
On the world's dark tide that rushes on
'- ,. And sunders many a beartl
To have looked on eyes like yours,
STo have touched such a rose leaf hand
...... And never, never again to meet,
.' But in Memory's dreamy land
Once tn the lonely dark
It stabbed me through and through,
S-The sudden thought of your sweet young
face; -
And once, ere the early dew .
Was dry on the springing grass,
And the-morning wind blew free, _
I almost met you beneath the firs,.
Wliere the path turns down to the sea.
And your smiling shadow lives
In the chambers of my brain,
Where my spirit wanders, a homeless ghost,
S*Seeking-your face again;
And if you be living yet,
SOr where, I cannot know,
But my sprit clings in a bootless dream
To our meeting long ago.
-M.-Falooner in Chambers' Journal.


It was Pierre who first called her that,
and Pierre was a creole, and Felice, his
wife, was a creole, and so they both
ieid, "Snow wide," but.then they meant
"Snow white" and everybody called her
that. And. very white she did look to
Pierre that morning in the early spring,
many years ago now, when he fund her
"'lying on the doorstep, a fleecy white
shawT, all around: her, and only her little,
round, baby blue eyes showing out of
the whiteness.
"See what the good God nas sent me,
S Felice," said Pierre, takingthe little,
-soft, white bundle in his big; brown
hands and carrying it in to his wife, "a
little snow white, baby."
And Felice, turned back the shawl
from the baby's head, and there, pinned
'. to her little dress, was a card, and as
Pierre bent down to 'see he read, "For
-'Pierre and Felice.'
n c'Did I not say, Feice," he cried.. "See,
it is for us-the good God has; sent it."
t When Felice bent down' to kiss- the
rosy lips that cooed and smiled tp, at
her she smelt the perfume on the little
S,". baby's clothes, and then she, thought of
the sweet, pale, gentle lady, whose hair

she had dressed a few nights before, and
of the. tall, dark man whom the lady had
not called her husband, but herfiend."
"But she did not tell Pierre all this.
Whatshe 'did toll him was -that they
would take their new t reastre and show
it to the priest, and Pierre-good, simple
S hearted Pierre-went along very close
beside Felice, wishing mightily that he
S could take the little white, soft bundle
S, in his own arms.
Ahnd Pere Martin, when he looked into
'.. gthe little baby's eyes, remembered'the
slight, graceful woman who had knelt
.6s long at vespers the evening before,
and the sweet,, gentle voices in which,
Swhein the service was -over, 'he -had
questioned him about the coiffeuse,
Felice, and Pierre,-her. husband, who
lived in a room in the" crumbling gray
S house beyVond the/church. He reme-u
bred also that the hand thai dropped
into his the Iv purse of gold, tellin
,'. him it was to be given to thissame Felice
,.. and, Pierre, if they should need it., had
S no ring upon the third finger, and Pere
Martin sighed as he looked into the
Baby's face and murmured, "'Another
laimb into the fold." But he, too, did
not speak of what be remembered. In-
stead, hlie told them he would himself g.)
with them to the office of the old notaire
on the corner and -that all would be ar-
ranged, and that the next day after
mass they might bring the child to be
And so they did and gave her the
name of Snow-white. No other name
would have suited her half so well.
Snow white she was when they found
her, and snow white Felice always tried
to keep her. She was never too busy to
put a few dainty tucks in baby's little
white slip, or to wash her face or to cur
her golden locks. And Pierre never
came up stairs without stopping to wash
his hands at the big tub down in the
-court so that he might not soil the baby':
dress when he took her iu his arms, and
when he kissed her he always looked t(
see that he had "not left the impress ot
his lips on hers. It was marvelous t(
see what a change the baby's coming
made m the lives of the two, Pierre ahd
Felice. Somehow Pierre'e- step grew
lighter _and his laugh grew cheerier
Hisfellow workers noticed it down a

the big warehouse where he hauled cot
ton on the dray, turning and pulling thE
bales with his sharp hook.
"Oh, I must not be so rough," he said
to them, "since there is now a little onE
J may disturb with my big stepping."
And Felice's songs were gayer as shi
tripped about at her tidy housework
and her fingers were defter as she did he
halir _dressing,. and her coiffures wer(
more elaborate and graceful than eve
"It makes a difference, is it not so
madame?" she said as she was dressing
the hair of a fond young mother, wh(
sat the while gently swinging the cradle
of her first born; "it makes a difference(
that there is now a little heart for you
big one to hold. I know. It is al
changed with me, now that the goo<
God has sent us a little one. It does no
matter -so much now that I must go ui
and down the stair, that I must brin
the water from the cistern in the court
that I. must be forever crimping ani
curling andt sticking in hairpins."
It did seem that all the little house
hold was changed. There were not many
to be sure, for besides Pierre and Felic
there were only Marta, and Babette an
Sieur Antoine in the little gray house
Marta lived in the first floor, and front
her apartments there came always th
pleasing odor of burnt sugar, for it wa
in her own little back room that sh
made the white and golden ropes o
candy that she sold upon the street ever
day. Martt's delight knew no bound
when Snow-white was able to sit alone
and hold in the little chubby fist a stic
of her whitest and crispest candy, sucl
ing it till it ran down her wrists andchi
and upon her white dress in streams c
: -sticky sweetness.
." ."It is by- the reason that the little on

""'ySurely, surely," answered Pierre; [
"God is good."
"Will. you not take your violin, Sieur
Antoine, and tell me how the' snow
looks?" said Snow-white.
And Sieur Antoine played. Those
who knew felt the inaudible falling of
the flakes,, thicker and thicker, but gent-
ly as the drawing of a shroud. Sieur
Antoine kept his eyes upon the little
face, and he -saw her waiting, listening.
Suddenly a twang of the strings and the
.twist of his bow sent out as. on the crisp
air the jingle of sleigh bells, the sound
of merry voices, and the child's face was
glad. But Sieur Antoine had forgotten; J
with the sounds of gladness there came
always for him the after note of sorrow,
..and he played on and on in the minor
chords till the tears stood in the little
one's eyes, and Felice put out her hand
to stay him.
All duating the night that followed
there sounded in Snow-white's dreams.
the merry "snow music" and then the
sorrow that came after it. "Will it be
like that-and that?" she asked herself.
While it was yet dark she heard below
in the street the muffled rumble of a cart,
and the cartman was singing. What
was it he said? As he came nearer she
heard-in the-man's deep v,:,ice, "Wash
Me and I Shall Be Whiter Than Snow."
She knew no,,t wh-it the words meant-
how could she? But oVer and over again
she kept -3, N.ig unthe words -to hereself till
morning brokeand da light, shone be-
tween the curtains, pale and strange.

thrill through the little weak frame and

The German Emperor and Speechmaking.
The following anecdote is related of
the German emperor during his journey
in the iceboat to Stettin. 'During the
dinner on the Haff, Herr iHaker, coun-
cilor of coummnerce, rose, and was about
to thaul the emperor in the mime of the
merchants of Stettin for the interest
which he had shliown -by his journey in,
the trade aund communications of Stet-
tip. The emperor noticed the intention
land forestalled him by saying: "Dear
councilor, let us leave this for today,
otherwise I shall have to reply, and re
are just now so jolly. Your health"',
Of course the speech remained unspoken.

Big Collections in New York Churches.

which Cornelius Vanderbilt attends one
Sunday morning yielded $11,500, al-
though it was not an unusual occasion,
and no-special requested for large amounts
had been made.. At comeof our churches
Sthe Sunday collection runs frequently as
high as $3,1'00 or $4,000, and at Grace and

as large as $10,000. This onrie, however,

membering Snow-white's enjoyment of
the dainty. "Will you not try some to6-
day? It is nice."
And so she would go through the day
with a lighter step and a heavier purse
than of yore.
But it was Babette who always took
care of Snow-white .when Felice .was
away. Babette was a blanchisseuse, and
was always washing, washing, washing
in the big tubs down in the court. So
when Snow-white was old enough and
the days grew mild Babette would take
Sheer shawl, and spreading it out on the
warm. bricks that paved the court put
the baby upon it, -shading her little face
from the sun by one of Pierre's big straw
hats hung upon a stick.-' The baby grew
to love Babette, with her broad, round
face and her plump, white arms-grew
to love the warm court where there was
so much sunlight, and always the splash-
ing of water and the flapping of snowy
clothes on the line.
Then there was Sieur Antoine, with
" his violin, whom Snow-white soon
learned to love too. At first he would
only pause when he met Felice or Pierre
upon the stair, and inquired in his sweet,
gentle voice after the little one; but by
and by he grew to stopping on his way
up to his room to see the lady, all white
and soft and clean, tucked away in her,
little bed. Sieur Antoine s poke but lit-
tle, but he played, oh, so beautifully, sit-
ting away up stairs by himself. His vi-
olin talked for him, he would say, He
was always sad and often hungry, Pierre
said. So when Snow-white was able to
climb the stair without the fear of fall-
ing, Felice used sometimes send her up
to Sieur Antoine's room with a slice of
bread or a bit of meat that he. might'
find it waiting for.him on his table. .
It was Pere Martin himself who used'
ato come for the little girl when she, was
old enough' to run about, "and carry her
,with him to the church and his own cozy
little houserwith its vine clad porch and
its garden- of roses behind. He would
pluck the heavy headed buds that
brushed her cheeks as she passed by
them, and take her back home with her
apron full of flowers, or her two hands
,full of the yellow oranges -that grow
upon, the tree beside ohis'window.
."MayI not give the Virgin one?" the
child'wuhld] shvy, as she picked, the finest
flower of her bunch to lay at Mary's feet
as they; 'passed the church.t th .
'Thuts amon her good friends grew,
. ,and prosperel the little God given child
of 'Pierre and Felice.
-. How white is the snow, matan?" she
woull .,ayito Felice; "is it so beautiful
- thatdyou wtul-l have me like it?" -
"By andtby we shall see, Petite," Fe-
iice would answer. h b

-now and then; ,\: wn Pierre would
come h6'ie. ,bivering inhis big overcoat;
xiwhen Sieur Antoine's-facje would look
I palt-vr and more pinched than ever; when
' Babette would lift the tubsjto her room,
and halng the clothes od line before the
Fire; whin ,the- roses in Pere. Martinet's
v r 1; *i '.'.i r ',' bli:hted with the cold,
but t'ue snow never came
S"How v white is the snow, papa?" the
child wouuld ask., and Pierre wonld take
a sample of cottonl from the pocket of
his blouse, and, tearing it into bits, seat-
Ster it in flakes about her head.
o "Whiter than that," he would say,,
--but we shall see, Petite."
S "Whliter than this," Babette would
tell her. taking the frothy snds from her
tub and thr,,oving it about the child's
Shed in the nir, whence it full in little
. water bits upon the pavement.
t in hiter than these, l Pere fMarmi
would say, as he lifted her to his broad
shoulders and held her aloft till her face
was buried iu the mass of o,.ange blos-
[ som s above. .. '.... 1, -.. "-,
1 I have tohld you that Snow-white grew
o and prospered, and so she did, only ere
e yet her eighth year was paiss,-:d, wheu
1 the winter carny on Pore Martin felt the
r burden grow lighter as he lifted the
i child to hisf shoulder, and Sieur Antoine
o thought tlhe little footsteps wt-re less
s brisk as she mounted the stairs to lfis
1 room.
o "Our little one is not well,"' said Marta
f t Felice one day; "she no longer likes
o the candy; she no longer comes for her
,bit in the morning. ....
1 Andl that night when Snow-white lay
- aslt..ep iu h>?r be~d Felice knelt down be-
side her, and saw th~tt the little face had
t indeed grown paler, and the little form

_ thinner.
e "What if the good God should take
again the child he has lent us, Pierre?"
d sLie said despairingly, and together they
Sknelt beside the child's couch and
prayed. The next day the child could
e not rise; Ehe lay there gTowing weaker
, and weaker, and filading away. like the
r roses in Pere Martin's garden.
e "Am I going- to be a baby again,
r maman?" she would say sometimes. "I
cannot walk, and you have always to
, -lift me."
g What a sad household it was when the
o little one's step was heard no more on
e the stair and her voice sounded no more
e in the halUs! As the week passed on
r Felice's song was hushed, and she went
1 out but seldom. Pierre's comrades no-
d ticed th:- poor fellow's sadness and pitied
t him. Babette would leave her tubs for
p hours to sit by the dear one's bed. Mar-
g ta's voice was heard less cheerily on the
t, street, and she found her way often to
d the old cathedral, were she might say
a prayer for Snow-white.
a- "This is a strange winter," said Sieur
, Antoine one night as he sat by the little
e one's bed fingering his violin strings,
d which were taut and dry with the cold.
3. "Will it snow?" said the child, looking
m up eagerly. .
e "I remember, Pierre, the last time it
is snowed here. It has been eight years
e ago, for the little one had not come to
)f us then. I remember it looked still and
y gray like this before the snow fell," said
Is Felice.
le "Yei, 1 rI'memilr," said Babette, "anid
k I would not cover my tubs, thinking to
k- catch the rain I thought was coming,
n and. the ne.t morniug were they not
Df belautifull"
"Ab, i it so beautiful, the snow ?"
2e asked the child, lifting up her little hand

Hans' Golden Easter Egg.
Gretchen and Hans were the littl(-

,,band had been a preacher of that
faith; but he had died soon aftc.r
coming to this country. He had
bought with his -scanty savings ;
little place in a small town, and thi.-
wonderful vegetables that the roothi-r
and children coaxed out of the on,?-
acre garden, and sent to the i-Vr-at
city near by, were their min sub-
Mrs. Meyer had had a b.id coughi
all winter, and couldi1l not do hL.
uual arnount ofsewing an.d knitting,
so that spring found the family un-
ilusually destitute.
In October Mr. Flack moved, into
a house beside them,'and his only
child, George, soon made acquaint-
.anco, through the- garden palings,
"/,wi th the rosy-cheeked -German
children, and they were back and
fourth all. winter; but, as Mrs. Flack
was. quite an invalid, the children
played in the nursery, under the'
care of.the nurse, and she had never,
known much of them.
The day before Easter, the nurse-
7girl being gone, the three came to
pla.y in,1Mrs. FlAok's room, and she-
heard the following conversation :

Our exports of dairy products for Janu-
ary, 1891, amounted to over $10.000,000
less than for the same minonth in 1890.
This shows two facts: First, there are
fewer cows in the dairy districts than
there Were last year, because so many
men became discouraged and went ont
of the business. Second, dairy products
bring a better price at home this winter,
consequently a less quantity is shipped
